Police in Alabama say a 20-year-old man who believes he is a vampire and goes by the nickname “Vamp” is accused of burning a “V” into a teenager’s forehead. Evan Francis Brown has been charged with second-degree assault, a felony. Gadsden police detective Mike Hooks said that Brown heated a fork or a spoon on a stove and used it to brand a “V” into a 17-year-old’s forehead. Hooks says Brown tied the teen up, tricking him into believing they were playing a game.
